"We've forgotten what is real. We think we have 1,000 real friends on Facebook. We are sucked into our screens and can't find the time to separate from technology. Only when the power is down, or if we are visiting a remote place with no wireless, can we take a break. We are warned of the tragic fate of Narcissus. This is the modern day Narcissus dilemma – we gaze into screen images until the outer world disappears." -Rachel Hovnanian
